Google Patents A Notebook Computer With Two Foldable Parts

Android

Google was recently awarded a patent detailing a notebook computer with two foldable parts, with its application being granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The keyboard doesn’t seem to be detachable from the device, with the two being connected by a hinge that can rotate 360 degrees and end up on the back of the computer’s display module when the device is in tablet mode. Unlike similar solutions that are already commercially available, the notebook patented by Google also sports another cover on its bottom part which can either cover the keyboard entirely or be used as a kickstand, as seen in the two sketches below which were reportedly attached t…

Researchers inject malware into DNA to hack a computer


Hackers have used all sorts of attack vectors to gain control of someone else’s computer, from USB drives to phishy emails. Now, researchers from the University of Washington predict that we might one day see viruses infect systems through DNA. It’s a far-fetched case, but still worth thinking about. The group of scientists who are looking into this at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering explain in its paper that it’s possible to bake malware into a genetic molecule and have it infect a system that’s used to analyze it. This method could be…

Computer scientists use wave packet theory to develop realistic, detailed water wave simulations in real time

Latest News

Think about the last time you were at a lake, river, or the ocean. Remember the ripples of the water, the waves crashing against the rocks, the wake following a boat, the sun reflecting off the crests? Amazingly, the mathematical equations describing many of these phenomena have been known for over a hundred years. The trouble is, actually solving them is extremely difficult and costly, making accurate, realistic simulations a significant problem for computer scientists, visual artists, and others. Now, computer scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) and Nvidia have introduced a novel representation of waves that improves computational efficiency by at le…

BA computer woes leave flights cancelled and passengers stranded

Computer Hardware

Update: British Airways says its computer systems and flight schedules are getting back to normal after a massive IT failure caused severe travel disruption on Saturday May 27.

Heathrow and Gatwick airports were the worst affected, with all flights in and out of the London airports cancelled for the day. BA says a power supply issue was to blame for the meltdown, though hasn't been any more specific than that.

As of Sunday May 28, BA said it was "aiming to operate a near normal schedule of flights from Gatwick and the majority of our Heathrow services on Sunday". However it urged passengers not to travel unless their flight was confirmed and to …
